Ryoji Ikeda: The Transfinite

Ryoji Ikeda_The Transfinite_Park Ave ArmoryRyoji Ikeda, a Japanese sound and visual artist who lives and works in Paris, will soon unveil The Transfinite; “an immersive sonic and visual environment that subsumes visitors within abstract expressions of digital information and binary code. Breathtakingly provocative black and white projections keyed to a tightly synchronized musical composition explore how data defines the world we live in. Known for large-scale installations and public artworks around the world that push the limits of digital technology, Ikeda creates his most ambitious installation to date with The Transfinite.”

“In choreographing vast amounts of digital information, Ikeda conjures up a transformative environment in which visitors confront data on a scale that defies comprehension, experiencing the infinite. This installation includes strobe effects and high volume.”

The Transfinite opens May 20th and runs through June 11th 2011,  here in NYC at the Park Avenue ArmoryTickets here.

Looking forward to checking it out!
